The Shyne School is in Woodinville, Washington; about one mile south of Redmond city limits, on Avondale Road. We specialize in licensed play based educational programs for children ages 1 to 6 years old. Parents have the flexibility to choose from three different daily schedules for toddlers through Pre-Kindergarten. The school also accepts a limited number of before and after school children including those up to 6 years old during school holidays.

We feel that working with parents is especially important. We let parents know what is happening at school by talking with parents daily, leaving messages on the ProCare Parent Engagement App, sending pictures, filling out accident and incident reports when needed, and a communication notebook (calendar) so parents can let us know of changes for their child’s schedule/vac/pick up. All the teachers read the communication notebook daily so that they will know what needs to happen or will be happening to their students.
Parents are emailed weekly lesson plans, bi-weekly menus as well as a school newsletter every other month. Teachers post their Lesson Plans so parents can see what is happening in their classroom and ask their children specific questions about their day.
Teachers document the children’s learning and set up times to meet with parents for conferences once a year or upon request. We use the WA State Developmental Learning Guidelines in the ProCare app for assessments sent to parents. We are here to help and encourage parents to use us as a resource!
ANNUAL CENTER EVENTS
We host annual center events that continue to build community. In the Fall, we host a Curriculum Night for each class to start the year off and to share with parents the classroom and information about the curriculum we use and the assessment for parent conferences. We also have a Fall Festival in the evening as a family event. In December we have a coffee and juice bar for families. Spring we have classroom events to celebrate Valentines. At the end of the year, we celebrate with a picnic. The children also have classroom celebrations throughout the year and go on field trips.
As a school we also reach out to help the community. In the Fall, just before winter break, we do a giving tree and food drive for the local YWCA Transitional Housing Program in Redmond.
